The North Central Missouri College Foundation announces it received a Gifts in Action donation from JK Farms to establish the John Kuttler Agriculture Scholarship. The scholarship honors the memory of the local farmer and community leader.
The first John Kuttler Scholarship will be awarded in fall 2021. To qualify, NCMC students must be enrolled full-time, major in Agriculture and Natural Resources, and have a minimum grade point average of 2.5. The scholarship application is available at ncmissouri.edu/scholarship. The priority due date is April 1st. High school seniors or new or continuing NCMC students are eligible to submit an application.
NCMC reports Kuttler served on the Trenton R-9 Board of Education and donated to NCMC. Those donations included a 312-acre farm in Buchanan County and to the Barton Farm Campus, which led to the construction of the Kuttler Animal Science Complex.
The college calls establishing a named scholarship in honor of a family member or in memory of someone “a wonderful way to leave a legacy.” Endowed scholarships can be awarded in accordance with the donor’s wishes. Donors who have benefited from scholarships themselves can “pay it forward” by establishing a named scholarship with their Gifts in Action.
The NCMC Foundation is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Contributions toward the campaign are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
